Re: statement contained in Volume 5A: Aboriginal Engagement, Appendix D: National and Regional Aboriginal Organizations.

To whom it may concern:

Enbridge has provided deliberately misleading and false information contained in their Section 52 Application claiming that the applicant has built relationships with the Haida Fisheries Program, Haida Development Corporation (sic, presumably Haida Enterprise Corporation) and Haida Child and Family Services. Haida Gwaii Community Futures is not an ‘Aboriginal Organization’ and has no idea how they got on the list.

Representatives of the above organizations are in no way engaged with nor have they given any reason to believe they are “relationship building” with Enbridge. We would like to have all of these names stricken from Enbridge’s filed documents as it is libellous bringing these organizations into disrepute, not only with their own constituents, but also the many First Nations, organizations and people who are committed to the health of this planet.

Respectfully,

Guujaaw
President of the Haida Nation

  1. Enbridge was invited by one of the teacher's at A training program in the building of the North West Community College in which "Haida Gwaii Community Futures" has an office. On the chalk board in that class room it was written by Enbrige..."This is Not Consultation" I guess they went against their own word and considered it consultation. There was only a handful of students there. Old Masset Village Council members would not allow Enbridge to host a meeting in the village of Old Masset as requested by the population.

  2. Enbridge employs people to add the industry's spin to mainstram media sites that allow commenting. The Robert Matas article about the Gitxsan in the Globe and Mail is an example. It has been bombarded with comments aiming to discredit First Nations people by using hateful stereotypes. The G&M deleted some of the worst but this campaign will continue. There are billions of dollars at stake and the misinformation effort will be intense.

  3. Yes, the trolls on the G&M are out in force.
